Healthy Brownie with Zucchini

As promised, an amazing healthy brownie with zucchini video recipe for this weekend. With lots of chocolate, a different ingredient, extremely spongy and moist.

Do not be sceptical about the zucchini, it is really key to get the texture of a brownie. I made a few trials until I found this recipe to trust me, it is really good!

I gave it to a few friends and they loved it, none of them guessed I added zucchini, so you can try it as well ­čśë

  • Date caramel: Soak pitted dates in hot water (20 ml) for 15 minutes. Add them to a powerful food processor. Blend until you get a creamy-caramel texture. With my Nutribullet it takes 1 minute.
  • Cashew butter: Roast cashews in a pan or oven for 15 minutes. Add them to a food processor. Process until very smooth. Pause to scrape down the sides of the bowl every 30 seconds. With my Nutribullet it takes 3-4 minutes.
